I've tried it, and I'm not too fond of it. Concepts cool and the players are way nicer than in DotA, but it's way overpowered with many of the classes. Most of the OP classes being donation classes, pretty much whoever donates always wins against regular players if they know how to use their class, pretty lame.

Also, moving this to games discussion.

Ummm... The only thing you would "donate" for is skins and bundles. Champions can be bought free from just playing the game.

I have Alistar, Amumu, Ashe, Blitzcrank, Master Yi, Morgana, Rammus, Ryze, Shaco, Sivir, Soraka, Twisted Fate, Zilean, and Corki. Corki was a gift character if you've had an account since a certain time, UFO skin came with it.

Level 30, and almost a full book of tier 3 runes (for caster and physical/non-specific)

I haven't spent a single penny on it. -_-

Explaining the process... You play for IP. Playing a practice game will get you 51 IP per round. You can only earn IP from a practice game three times in a day. For normal games, losing will get you 60-70 IP, winning will get you 100ish IP. You can use IP to buy/unlock champions and runes.

The only things that cost Riot points (what you pay for) are skins and boosts (IP/EXP).

I played it.
It's okay... way too easy, most of the players are bad. People are nicer there, but they're not really gamers, ha.
It has some cool ideas, I like the talents and champion spells, but it's too simple, especially the players.

You played at the low low low-elo. Once you get about 200 wins and about 100 losses, you get to mid elo. Once you get to mid elo it gets really fun, since that's where extreme teamwork comes into play.

Yeah, I'm about level 10, I like Mundo and Gangplank. I generally use Mundo atm and I am saving for Gangplank.

i played it.

The movement screen is so much different from wc3. With wc3, i became adept at just flicking my finger to the edge of the trackpad and it moved my screen, i cant do that with LoL, its too hard to move the screen around with a trackpad, if i try to flick my finger again itlll just go about 3/4ths of the screen

The game's too nice for me, lol.
When I'm bored of everything I go on once in awhile, but it's nothing spectacular.

There's certainly a difference in champion viability for climbing ELO.

Low ELO, it's all like. YEAH! Master Yi! I kill your entire team! Get higher in ELO, stun, stun, snare, stun; Master Yi is f-ing useless.

This happens in reverse with Alistar. Raww! I'm going to tank and initiate hell yeah... Only my team isn't f-ing moving with me. In higher ELO, you get generally get higher ELO teammates, though matchmaking here and there decides you deserve to lose for no apparent reason. Anyways, he's great when in a team that can take a fast victory.

Let's see... I'm coming up to high elo soon and what generally happens is that both sides pick alot of CC (Crowd control: ie, stuns, snares, slows) and focus on having a tank or carry. People will usually rush bushes with someone from mid to get first blood then optionally push to take a quick tower, but usually mid trucks it back. Mid generally consists of the carry, or their best farmer. Good combinations at this elo is probably Morgana and Tristana in the same lane. Morgana snares, then Tristana will Rocket jump on you or finish with basic attack or her ult.

I played this and liked it. Messed something up and had to reinstall it, but I kept putting it off.

I love the customization part of the game, plus the champion rotations keep things fresh. I miss my Jax, though. :(

Also, would anyone care to elaborate on this SEA issue? I don't want to reinstall it if I can't play it anymore.

basically, they made a deal with some SEA company.

the COMPANY (not Riot), i think asked that SEA players be IP Banned from NA LoL..
so the company set an IP RANGE for banning.

BUT there are reports (and I am one of them) of some SEA Players' IP that escaped the ban.

Riot Signs a League of Legends Publisher in Southeast Asia said:
http://www.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?t=66146

Attention, League of Legends players!

Riot Games has signed a distribution agreement with a publisher in Southeast Asia! While we cannot yet reveal the specifics, we are extremely excited at the prospect of being able to offer a higher quality experience to players in this territory through our new partner.

Through this partnership, we will be able to offer Southeast Asia its own, unique League of Legends experience. In addition to a localized client, we aim to be able to provide increased accessibility to Southeast Asian players through features and promotions specifically geared towards the residents of this region. We also hope to advance League of Legends to many new players in the area, including a large number of veteran DotA players.

Unfortunately, this does mean that, as of February 25th, players located in Malaysia, Vietnam, Singapore, and the Phillipines will be blocked from the North American servers as part of our publishing agreement. All of these players have received a refund in full for any purchases they have made, and each has received a personal email from Riot Games explaining the situation, and offering a code redeemable for additional exclusive content once their local servers go live.

We believe that this will be an exciting opportunity for League of Legends to achieve even greater success in a new market, and to provide a high-quality, competitive gaming experience to a much larger number of Southeast Asian players.

That sucks. Quite frankly, I hate playing with other Asians. Well, not in general, but if you've played, I dunno, Maple Story SEA or some local MMO here in the Philippines or something, you'll see what I mean.

Ah well.

Though... I haven't any received mail from Riot yet. I guess there's hope. :eek:

You can change this now in User CP.
I also play League of Legends. I am level 26 now, at around 1:1 win/loss ratio. I recently started playing morgana, a terrific support champion, which also means you rely on your team much :). Since I play solo a lot it depends completely on the team.

I play on the EU servers, summoner name is Bronxo. Add me if you like.

'just played with Mordekaiser...]

all i can say is he's not for low elo play.
he heavily depends on teammates for snare/cc.. 'cause he aint got one!..

all he does is damage damage damage.
if your enemy can just stand still. lol.
yeah, you need really good teammates for him.

i have to admit, the people in LoL are a lot nicer, i probably died like 4 times in my first game, and they didnt yell or scream, or anything. In a DotA game i wouldve been kicked T_T

    Good luck to the hurricane path people. Is TH still in Houston?
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I think so
    +1
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Yeah we got nothing here did not even rain
  • Ghan Ghan:
    We could use some rain.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am not complaining though Hurricanes are not fun I have been through alot of them
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I evacuated for it just incase since I live in La Porte pretty much right on the water (in Houston area). Didn't see anything. It's a good thing for me anyways.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It's too bad that Blizzard messed up so terribly with Reforged.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Still has a 0.6 user metacritic score.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    (Out of 10)
  • Varine Varine:
    I haven't even tried it yet because everyone said it sucked. How do you get .6 out of ten?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am waiting for Dwarf Fortress to come out on Steam then I am on it.
  • Accname Accname:
    I play Dwarf Fortress from time to time.
  • Accname Accname:
    Its Okay.
  • Accname Accname:
    But the performance is sub-par. Does not seem to be well optimized.
  • Varine Varine:
    Is the Steam version coming with a graphical overlay or is it using the ASCII graphics still?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Steam version has the graphical overlay.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Steam Version has graphics, a new interface and will be integrated in the steam mod stuff
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I didn't think WC3 Reforged was that bad. It pretty much did what it stated (to me at least), but then again I can care less about reforged campaigns and all that. I just care about gameplay.
  • Varine Varine:
    I think people were hoping for a resurgence in mod support. I have little interest in the actual game tbh
  • Varine Varine:
    Plus I know they added that Dota precedent clause where Blizzard can steal your shit which isn't cool.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    They sold Reforged to the community as primarily a huge graphical uplift with high res textures and redone cinematics.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    They even showed one of the redone cinematics at Blizzcon and that very cinematic wasn't even in the released game.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    So I think folks were angry about that.
